Students who are interested in pursuing doctoral studies through the Department of Creative Arts Therapies should consider one of Concordia two interdisciplinary doctoral programs: the Interdisciplinary Humanities PhD or the Individualized Phd program. These programs have served as a home for our scholars and practitioners working in emerging currents of creative therapeutic research.

Individualized Programs - MA/PhD

The Individualized Program (INDI, formerly SIP) was created by the School of Graduate Studies to offer a limited number of exceptionally capable students the opportunity to pursue areas of research not covered by existing graduate programs. Interdisciplinary study is the hallmark of INDI. Read more about cross-disciplinary research currents

Interdisciplinary Humanities PhD

The Humanities Doctoral Program: Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture is housed within the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture, jointly administered by the Faculty of Arts and Science and the Faculty of Fine Arts. Serving as Concordia's premier site for interdisciplinary exploration since 1973, the Humanities Doctoral Program offers students an opportunity to pursue innovative interdisciplinary research and art-based practice in areas that span the Humanities, Social Sciences and Fine Arts.
